Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Joey Styles was recently released from WWE.
No word as to when the release went down exactly, but his last tweet was on July 29th — just days after a Facebook Q&A he participated in that was described as Joey’s shoot interview.
Styles was extremely open during the chat and talked about not liking the name of the Universal Championship, hating the 3-man commentary booth and why Vince loves Roman Reigns.
Unclear if Joey’s honesty had anything to do with his release, but the video has since been pulled from WWE’s YouTube and Facebook pages.
Styles was an announcer in WWE from 2005-2008 and then transitioned into a position for the company’s website. He was eventually promoted to Vice President of Digital Media Content.
He was also the famous voice of ECW throughout it’s entire run.
